Alumni and friends are invited to join Penn State McKeesport's 2007 trip to Paris, France. Travelers will experience the living history and vibrant modernity of the City of Light, inspiring some of the world?s greatest art, architecture, and films. In addition to visiting celebrated museums and monuments such as the Louvre, the Musée d?Orsay, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, and Versailles, visitors will be able to discover their favorite places among the many parks, markets, and neighborhoods. The group will immerse itself in French culture: see films, taste the cuisine, interact with Parisians in cafés in shops, and on the metro.
Students may take the opportunity to earn Penn State credit by engaging in one or two spring 2007 courses: French Culture through Film and Integrative Arts: French Art and Architecture. Both the Paris travel experience and the associated courses are open to students at any college. Friends, family members, faculty, and staff are welcome to join without taking the courses.
The cost of the trip is $1,565, and includes flights, airport transfers, hotels, breakfasts, and the guidance of two experienced Penn State McKeesport faculty members who are fluent in French. Please contact Dr. MaryEllen Higgins at 412-675-9461 or [email protected] or Amy Guthrie at 412-675-9140 or [email protected] for more information. A deposit of $150 is needed by October 20, 2006, to secure a place. The full balance will be due on November 30.
